[cfe-dev] Type of enum constants

The type of an enum constant expression is currently the underlying type 
of the enum (usually int). While this is correct in C, it's incorrect in 
C++ and breaks overload resolution.

However, the code for defining enums is complex, with all those 
adjustments of the value, and I'm not sure which parts are necessary for 
correct functioning. Can someone who knows this code please adjust it so 
that in C++, EnumConstantDecl::getType() returns the enum type?
